Outside of the more traditional markets, there’s a variety of additional applications for containment systems and the need for geosynthetics, especially as people focus more on protecting our resources and environment.

Storage Tanks—Piping, Leak Detection/Repair, Remediation
While new geosynthetic lining technology often offers a low-cost, more effective solution to storage tanks, there are still applications such as with petroleum, medical waste, and specific industrial waste in which only a storage tank will do. Hallaton is experienced with storage tank installation, piping, leak detection, repair, remediation and removal.

Concrete Protective Liner
These protective liners are made from high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane with studs on one side that are designed to lock into applied surfaces. They protect concrete structures from corrosion, weathering and mechanical damage. Concrete Protection Liner extends the lives of a wide variety of concrete structures, such as cast-in place sewer tunnels, sump pits, liquid storage tanks and more.

Polyurea spray liner is a bio-safe, solvent-free protective spraying system that’s extremely durable and can be used for a variety of containment applications. Providing a water-tight seal and protection against foundation degradation, abrasion, corrosion, chemical damage and more, Polyurea is often a better alternative to traditional geosynthetic liner on projects with intricate design and multiple pipe penetrations.

When Polyurea is applied directly to properly prepared concrete, metal, and geotextile substrates, using special equipment and trained applicators, the process yields excellent quality and high performance all around. Applications include secondary containment, aqueducts, livestock floors/stalls, food processing facilities, water and sewage treatment, heavy equipment protection and more.

Polyurea is USDA-acceptable and ANSI/NSF 61 approved. It conforms to a variety of surface substrates, cures in under a minute and can be sprayed in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Polyurea also comes in customizable formulas to address specific project needs.

Geosynthetics have been successfully used to contribute significantly to the optimal performance of roadways. These functions include separation, filtration, reinforcement, stiffening, drainage, barrier, and protection. The four main applications for geosynthetics in roads are subgrade separation and stabilization, base reinforcement, overlay stress absorption, and overlay reinforcement. The products may also provide a moisture barrier.

Vapor Barriers
Geosynthetics are often used to eliminate exposure to harmful gases within building structures. By installing a geomembrane vapor barrier system below or above the foundation, you can effectively prevent unwanted gas from entering the structure.

Recreational Uses
There are many recreational uses for geosynthetics, such as playing fields, walking trails, parks, wetlands, etc.
